Est. Completion None
Fix Required


From: Tom Adams

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

I have filed a FOIA against my federal employer but they are asking for over $1,000.00 for this service, can they really charge me that much? This is not for personal gain what so ever.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Yes, they can charge that much, but they should do a good faith estimate in writing for you to review. They should be able to work with you to bring that amount down.
